[Guide] Palalas and Blood Lord
Ive seen many people throwing palalas rather randomly at BL, wich doesnt work because it sometimes get blinded far away from the group after blinking (yeah, i call it Blink ).. Whats the point of blinding him if by the time we get to him the stun is aready over..
However, timing palalas to explode right when he dissapears (youll notice hes still there, for about 2 seconds before he respawns somewhere else) will force him to reappear right on the spot.
This will allow the party to "corner" him for a while, at least while the palalas last. Of course you would be relying on fionas or lanns atacks to get the break off, but i think the time reduction would be more beneficial to everyone.
Now, this of course needs an organized party. Just my thoughts.
One party member uses his 3 palalas timing them, if hes good he can throw, land a LLLLR Combo or below, and throw again. You need to get the timing on the BL vanishing skill.
The other 5 members spam atacks like crazy, once the "Flasher" runs out, he gets in to spam atack and the next party member takes over the flashing.
I recommend using the party list order to decide the flashers, also you can press F1 to let the enxt member know you got 1 Palala left.
EDIT: Regarding the option of using fine spears, i defend the use of palalas because theres a LARGE room for error with them, you can just aim to the floor and click and it will blind the BL on a very large radius. Fine spears will (even with auto aim) have a lower margin because of the BL moving even when atacked.
TIPS: (After the palalas run out)
1. If youre an Evie dont be afraid and blink to the BL feets as soon as he flies and throws the fireballs, you can land a BT while hes in the air, and another one when he lands. (Works for Fionna and Lann, im not familiar with them though)
2. Throw the spear as he spawns, thats 1 free hit towards break off. You can get the break off with skills too.
3. Good time to throw spear is just after the BL spins in the air and lands. Clear hit to the eye. (He will land facing where he faced when he started, move to that spot and wait with the spear loaded)
4. Havent tried with an organized party but you can "tease" the BL with feather cancel, repair kit cancel, etc. Just a way to avoid guessing where he will spawn.
5. If youre an evie and BL does the "alcoholic breath" atack, start your BT combo from behind and land it. Youll get the feel of the BL hit box as you try it. (Works for everyone really..)
This would be a nice oportunity for everyone in front of the atack to land a spear on its nose.
6. Evies: take advantage of the LLR reach. (Death Label has pretty good reach too, use it LLLR)
EDIT2: I would like to make the tips section class related, meaning there could be a Lann tips, Fiona and Evie too. Now, since i dont play neither a Lann or Fionna (a.k.a Milf), i count on everyone to post those here. Thank you :3

HI DEATHLABEL :)
and yeah its overalll a good guide
if yu guys cant time the palas correctly, yu can always use it when he does the airborne firebolt spam thing. just throw one beneath him and spam attack. the palas effect lasts for 5-6 seconds.
after the effect ends make sure to throw another one assap and take turns. doing it with a guild rather than a bunch or ignorant kids , each run would be about 5-6 min
Im very happy that my first guide isnt a failure xD Ill add stuff as i figure it out, or people post it in here.
Hi Legend! XD its so hard to find a solid party... Y_Y
Thank you all for your positive feedback.
What about Fine Spears? I've noticed they 'freeze' other bosses...does that work here? The Palala thing works great if you have a competent group...sadly it seems 90% of them are not and simply wait for that football to spawn or you fail (my guild is dead so therefore I am stuck with randoms for now).
I'm still trying to figure out how best to get close to him as a Fiona, it would seem he has all smashes except one attack. You can counter his double swipe, however it is really hard to tell when he is going to do that and when he is either going to teleport or glide at you. The random attention span of the boss does not make for easy 'tanking' either.
Heavy Stander Counter would be nice here...
Spear/Fine Spear have high knockdown, like any other attack. The Palala sends the boss into a state of deafness, which includes a quick attack.

fine spear has a kd rate but it isnt 100% pala will 100% immobilize the boss, giving yu 5-6 seconds free attk.
if yu have an evie using rank a ir, yu can prob land a LLLLR combo + two more LL attacks
I find that one of the better times to spear his face is when he's breathing fire. That attack usually hits a lot of people, so you're likely to save a live or two if you get his face at that time.
You can also counter his turn around swipe, as well as his blink (which is an actual attack if he lands right on you). The best thing to do, provided you're a hammer Fiona, is to run up to him when he hangs himself and is about to do his ring of fire spell. The moment you notice he's about to do that, start a full combo (up to Stigma) and position yourself so that when you're charging Stigma you're directly under him. Just be careful of when he's flying up, since if you touch him then he'll hit you. His ring of fire gives you a free level 2-3 Stigma attack.

I use a regular shield against him, and sometimes I've HS'd his Gliding Fury but it didn't knock me back. Although I might have just been seeing his attack wrong and it could've been something else.
